    Re: Roadster Rebuild Diary from Cornwall

    I'm also 5' 8" and can remember the time when it was defined as the national average height......... Never felt the urge to put blocks under the front of the seat in the Cabrio. Tempted to give it...

    Re: Cabrio rear bearing noise?

    Agreed, always a good first step is to check whether your tyres have gone out of shape. This happens more than you would think.

    Re: Marlins a la Frog!

    Blimey, for that amount of coin I'd want it looking mint, especially the current engine bay.

    Re: Greetings from Ramsey, Huntingdon

    I've already purchased a pair of MX-5 mk1 seats to go into my Cabrio. To achieve this I am going to have to shrink the width by circa 45 mm. Yes, there are alternatives out there that will be a...

    Re: Cabrio windscreen surround

    I too would like to replace the surrounds on my Cabrio windscreen, the initial install (not my work I hasten to add) saw them cut too short and then little fillers added to each end, not the neatest...
  7. Re: Check you upper wishbone mount rods now and again, plus new bushes

    Hmmm, given the task this rod performs I wouldn't have contemplated straightening the rods and putting them back unless, of course, this is just to check the new bush alignment? Any rod that has...

    Re: Stoneleigh

    Hmm, I'm thinking I will just park away from the club area instead of getting stuck in all the melee close to the show. There always seems to be the odd spot about that you can park up at. It'll...

    Re: Cabrio kit for sale

    I agree, its just one of those itches that needs scratching. I'd also be tempted with a Porsche one day if the funds ever became available, a Cayman would do........ :)

    Re: Jrr 929 d

    Triumph Dolomite 1850 also had a gear stick mounted overdrive (had one when I was younger though the engine was replaced by a TR7 one, a bit nippier). Just in case you are looking for alternate...

    Re: YKC built roadster for sale

    And more than a bit on the scruffy side. I'd be interested to see inside the engine bay, judging on how tatty the cockpit is.

    Re: Berlietta for sale

    I was thinking they might have done this for hillclimbing? Often see Roasters with similar appendages at the back with extra wheels lashed to it. Either way its 50 Shades of "Wrong".

    Sticky: Re: What have you done with your marlin today

    Yes, sorry, I've already slapped myself for that response, not very helpful.

    Regarding the tyre pressures; IMO 25 psi seems a tad high though does depend on the tyre profile. I run 25 psi on a...

    Sticky: Re: What have you done with your marlin today

    You should have bought a Cabrio, it would have saved you a lot of grief changing the suspension about, no leaf springs on a Cabrio.

    Re: Marlin Roadster vs Panther Kallista

    In my eyes the Panther looks a bit bloated next to the Marlin. That said I'm probably a bit biased as the Marlin is a particularly fine example and a great colour too. An excellent example, I'd be...
